"Happy 29th Anniversary Leigh!" [Oct. 9th, 2011|09:49 am]
[Current Mood |gratefulgrateful]

I'm so grateful for 29 years with the best guy I know - & talk about
"In sickness & in health"
A good portion of the last 5 years have been spent together like this:

I've managed to stay out of the hospital so far this year - but ...don't want to jinx it XD
it's been quite a medical journey since the start of my ulcer surgery gone wrong in 2006 - & I've made
great strides. Nutrition is a struggle - not sure if I still have "rickets" but I keep losing my teeth~ arrggh

I've had to have several teeth extracted due to bone infections - (due to gastric bypass & other surgeries, my system doesn't absorb nutrients effectively) I was eating a lot of nuts for protein, but losing molars makes chewing difficult.

I've had a UTI (urinary tract infection) that has been resistant to 2 rounds of antibiotics (bactrim then Cipro)
>.<... but I'm not complaining - just keeping a lj record of what's going on

Happy Anniversary! this is quite an accomplishment and i think you are both pretty lucky to have found such supportive and caring partners in each other. ^ ^

Kudos as well for staying OOH[out of hospital, like OOB (out of bed), only better] for this year. in light of previous years, like last year, this one seems more business as usual, not totally free of trouble, but manageable perhaps.

and boy do i know about the tooth problem. having that issue myself. nuts without molars is tough. i'm always scared to eat anything crunchy, that yet another tooth will crumble away and the bits have to be extracted. >.<

good luck wishes and a big *hug* sent your way!! <3
